WOYWW: Fear and Trembling

My desk this morning has a number of things 
NOT related to  crafting, I am afraid.
There is a cup of ginger tea 
and a homeopathic medicine,
Cuprum Aceticum,
for my bad cough.
And then there are the usual residents
that should be cleaned up if I would 
just take 10 minutes to do it!

On the floor, I have some 
works in progress.
Did some at the beach this weekend
but not enough progress was made.


From my journal this morning:
"Work out your salvation
with fear and trembling."
Philippians 2:12

I'd like to quote from my usual
meditation guide, Word Among Us:
"When was the last time 
you were in awe of the Lord?
In a world that urges us 
to rush from obligation
to obligation all day 
and then zone out
in front of the TV at night,
it can be hard to feel 
any fear and trembling.
But it is this experience that
God wants to give us.

"He knows that unless we experience 
a taste of heaven in 
our every day lives, 
our faith will weaken,
and we will lose our motivation to
work out our salvation."

God is always calling us!
"Come, everything is now ready!"
Luke 14:17


Every week I choose one wonderful
visitor who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.

I know how much time and effort
it takes to leave a comment!
and I appreciate that soooo much!

This week Random Generator
chose #32, 
Christine is a Filipina too
and because of her blog has 
seen ordinary things 
in an extraordinary way.

  2. what an awesome devotional! we do not walk
    in fear and trembling these days. we think
    over much of ourselves and not highly enough
    of His greatness.

  25. Hello my talented blog friend. What lovely things you have to show us this week - andalso, your inspiring words too. I'd love to know how you choose the words you show us, what makes you show that/those particular phrase or saying or quote. I'm interested because well, I always have lots to say, but it's never as lovely as the things you say or quote. But I do read and listen to what you are saying.

    I hope you had a lovely time at the beach with the family - it doesn't matter that you didn't get much painting done - does it? It means that you spent that time with your family or hopefully relaxing.

    Big hugs to you Patsy

  27. Wow! Such amazing artwork. Thanks so much for linking up at Thriving Thursdays. I didn't pin this because I wasn't sure you'd want it pinned, but if it's okay, come leave me a comment to let me know because I'd love to add it to the pinterest board. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful artwork.

  28. Happy Very Belated WOYWW. Hope your cough is improving. Spending time on the beach must be wonderful. It is cold, dark and wet here now. We are off to Spain in less than 3 weeks for our winter holiday, and it will be wonderful to see some sunshine. Ali x #63
